Installed in November 2019, the Cray CS-Storm serves as HLRS’s primary machine to accelerate artificial intelligence (AI) workloads. The machine complements HLRS’s high-performance computing infrastructure by addressing user demand for processing-intensive applications in the realms of machine learning and deep learning, and it supports a wide variety of well-known and established AI frameworks and tools, such as Apache Spark, Python-based data science libraries like scitkit-learn, and frameworks steered toward deep learning, including TensorFlow and PyTorch. The system also includes 64 NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs. Using the Cray Urika-CS AI and analytics suite, the CS-Storm enables HLRS users to accelerate AI workloads, arming users to address complex computing problems, and process data with higher accuracy.
